Tournament Information

Companions of the Shattered Lance Torchlight Tournament Friday at Dusk. Full write up below.

Unbelted Tournament Saturday after War.

The Companions of the Shattered Lance humbly invites you to the Sixteenth Annual Autumn War Torchlight Prize Tournament! A martial tourney to celebrate skill-at-arms, chivalry, pageantry and heart! Bring your weapons and gauntlets and display your chivalric spirit on the Eric Friday night. Armor inspection begins at the first whisper of darkness. This year’s contest will be open to any weapons style but shields will be limited to 16 inches in any dimension. We will end the evening with a two-person single-sword relay at the barrier. So make sure you stick around to the end. Rest assured, there will be plenty of fighting for everyone! The Companions of the Shattered Lance will select The Victor of this tournament whom we believe most fully encompass those virtues of chivalry we aspire to achieve. To enter the lists your armor needs to be of a high standard and clearly represent the period of your persona. To that end, no plastic (basket hilts are fine) or modern materials may be visible. Some other items that are not permitted are, visible tape, stickers on helmets, tennis shoes, and large areas of rust on your armor. This will be strictly enforced this year, if you have any questions about what is acceptable, reach out to Phillip de Mantel (mka JasonPainter).
